Stayed in 2006, hotel planning refit but still as good as remembered. Great staff, food and we were upgraded to a suite as few people staying.Enjoyed a week in peace and comfort ,short drive from Faro. Would / will return !
Excellent staff. Helpful and friendly. Rooms are a little dated, but what do you expect for the price.
The rooms and the pool are spotlessly clean. The whole site is very neat and tidy.
The breakfast was good quality for the money with home made cakes and jams every day and freshly baked rolls as pasties every day.

"Fantastic resort with access to shops and markets"
This is my second time staying at this resort and I was lucky this time to have been able to stay in one of the villas surrounding the pool. I highly recommend the villas due to the very large patio areas attached to them. Throughout the day, we were able to move position, around the patio to sunbathe or find a shaded area as a tree was well positioned. Wild birds singing and the overall peaceful feeling within this resort just added to the 'feel-good factor'.
The staff are so friendly and the cleaner was so flexible and called daily to see if we needed anything.
The pool is great and it also has a high diving board, in a deeper water section, and this was enjoyed by most of the bathers. There is also a kids pool and both pools are very open and unshaded which help to make the water warm. However, patio umbrellas are readily available plus sunbeds are plentiful.
There is also a pool bar which also serves snacks and the food was really high quality yet reasonable in price
Me and my friends had amazing time here in this apartment. The views were amazing, the facilities were so convenient as it had everything we needed. We cooked our own food, chilled on the balcony, 1 minute walk from the beach, taxi available every minute. Was truly amazing. The only downfall was that the country at that time of the year seemed very quiet, and almost 80% of places were closed.

We stayed in Portugal for 4 nights and this hotel was just perfect. The breakfast buffet was wonderful and was even better since it was included in the price of the room! Bed was a little hard but the room itself was very clean and had brilliant air conditioning. We had a large balcony too which we ate dinner on twice! Staff were very helpful but the cleaning staff came into our room every day even though we had the Do Not Disturb sign up which was a bit annoying but other than that we had a wonderful stay!

My boyfriend and I had a lovely first holiday together at this peaceful hotel. I have visited Alvor previously and stayed in a beautiful neighbouring hotel which is also owned by Pestana. Both hotels have been a pleasure to stay at. We would both like to return together in the future to explore more of the beautiful Algarve. Staff were both friendly and helpful. Alvor is a truly magical and special place. I would recommend people to visit Alvor and consider this hotel as an option. Happy days!!
